An instant classic by NetEnt, Copy Cats is a slot game released in May 2017 that immediately captured the attention of slot players worldwide. And it’s not just for cat lovers, though it does celebrate humanity’s love for these furry creatures – it’s a quality slot game that’s loads of fun to play! Click here to scroll to the free Copy Cats game on this same page.

Copy Cats has RTP of 96.76%, which means it really pays a lot. There are 25 fixed paylines, NetEnt’s favorite setup, and the minimum bet is €0.25 while the maximum is €125. All players who are used to playing NetEnt slots will be comfortable with this one, and the rest will learn how to play quickly enough.

Copy Cats feature

The game has a unique feature Copy Cats by which the slot game is named, and it can produce big wins during base play. We all love slots that pay big in base game, and this one does, so you’ll make some money even before getting to that free spins game.

Whenever reel 1 gets populated by three identical Cat symbols (Wilds can substitute), the Copy Cats feature is triggered. All other Cat symbols on remaining reels will change to the Cat that’s on reel 1. And that means you’ll get tons of same Cat symbols on your reels, and there’s a good chance you’ll land a big win. It doesn’t have to, but if you see a lot of Cats on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 – and you also see your first reel populated by the same Cat, get ready for a nice payout.

There’s a grand total of 12 symbols in the game including Wild and Scatter. The lowest-paying symbols are four Cat Paws and NetEnt deserves credit for not giving us those AKQJ card symbols, this is much nicer. Those four symbols don’t pay that little, either, as Fishbone, Milk and Mouse pay just a bit better. Of course, the main symbols are cats, three of them: Blue Cat, Pink Cat and Red Cat. The Red one is the most valuable symbol in the game.

Free Spins game

Golden Cat is the Wild symbol and it substitutes for all symbols except for the Scatter. It’s just a simple Wild with nothing extra added to it. Cat Bell is the Scatter symbol that triggers 10 free spins when you land three Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5. Free spins can be re-triggered for 10 more. The free spins game is simple, there’s no extra features, they’re just free spins. Not very satisfying, but NetEnt probably had to compensate for that rewarding Copy Cats base game feature and had to give us a skinny free spins feature to keep the RTP at the desired level. We don’t mind – it’s always better to see more RTP in the base game, at least if you’re that kind of a player.

Variance and Return to Player (RTP)

Copy Cats won’t appeal to those players who look for higher variance and a chance of a really big win, as there’s nothing that even resembles a jackpot here. Sure, you can win (see above) and win big, but Copy Cats still keep wins to a decent (and not life-changing) level. So, players looking for a jackpot will have to look elsewhere. Copy Cats is for casual players who want to have some fun with these cute cats, without losing too much money, and want a chance to win big in base game. Overall, when you see a game that has return to player (RTP) of 96.76%, there’s really nothing to complain about. Copy Cats is a quality game and probably the best one themed around cats.
